#1 of 138 2009 Acura RL
Dec 28, 2007 (1:19 am)
A rear end shot of what could be the 09 RL. Not much has been said of it. There are plans to release this thing early next year. Possible features include a Hard Drive, and maybe some more new toys. New engine will probably be added. Probably not a v8 or v10 though. I hear only 2 body panels are being changed. Maybe more interior room. Who knows! Any more info will be added as the time goes on.

I was at an Acura dealer two days ago to look at the RL and the salesman said that the 2009 RL would be released is spring of 2008 and the the new engine is to be the diesel. Do you have any confirmation on this?

Don't know about diesel. Probably not until 2010 model year. Maybe earlier but Honda said 2009 is when the diesel is out. Yes it's coming out in the spring. The build out for the current model is in feb. So that means maybe march or april.

Rumor has it that it will debut at the 2008 Chicago autoshow which bodes well for the early delivery. The 2008 RL's buildout is in Feb. Buildout is simply the last allocations of the current model.
#5 of 138 09 RL MMC
Jan 11, 2008 (2:27 pm)
This MMC which is the facelift is going to be the most extensive facelift. No details but a 3.7L v6 is a possibility. It's also going to be the most expensive.

Some color choices below
Crystal Black pearl, Silver jade metallic, Grigio metallic, Tuscan beige, Alberta white, Platinum Frost, Opulent blue and Redondo red
Some colors are new. Features are going to be enhanced. Maybe no more PAX tires. Navigation and bluetooth are going to be enhanced. Looks like a ton of features are going to be changed.

#9 of 138 What were they thinking!!

That grill is horrible looking. I wonder how many people it had to go through to meet approval. I had such high hopes for this MMC. Besides the grill, they did a really good job with it.
